Mote Con Huesillo

12 May

As the days have gotten warmer I found myself with a hankerin’ for Mote Con Huesillo. 

It’s essentially a summer “beverage” even though it definitely requires more than a straw.

It’s basically “mote” which is husked wheat,

“con” (with)

“huesillo” (dried peaches) that have been cooked with water, sugar and cinnamon.

It’s delicious. So the only place I know to get it in LA is here.

But last time I was there I saw this: And I got the idea to make up a batch myself.

I picked up some Trader Joe’s Dried White Peaches. Soaked them and cooked them. Using a recipe I got online. 

Turned out pretty delicious.  I especially like it for breakfast.

12 hours to stop Uganda’s anti-gay bill!

11 May

From Avaaz.org:

We have 12 hours to save thousands of gay Ugandans from possible execution. On Wednesday, Parliament could pass a law that imposes the death penalty for homosexuality. An international outcry shelved this bill last year — if we can ramp up the pressure again and keep the gay death penalty law from reaching a vote this week, it will die when Parliament closes in 12 hours.
